Did you know that Netflix had a new show about an average family man who also happens to be a criminal? Neither did I! But they do, so let’s take a look.
There’s not a whole lot to go on here but Jason Bateman is a better dramatic actor than you probably give him credit for, and Laura Linney even managed to be good in one of those terrible Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies because she’s just that good, so let’s be hopeful about this one.
I was about to write “set your DVRs” but it’s Netflix, so maybe mark your calendars that this comes out July 21st.
Here’s the write up:
The Byrdes, husband and wife Marty (Jason Bateman) and Wendy (Laura Linney), their teenage kids Charlotte (Sofia Hublitz) and Jonah (Skylar Gaertner) — are for all intents and purposes an ordinary family. Ordinary save for Marty’s job: The top money launderer for the second largest drug cartel in Mexico.
